Have you lost a loved one to suicide? Do you feel that this has affected your life? Has your relationships with others changed because of it? Do you feel that you are still processing this tragedy? You are invited to a 10 day transformational retreat in Bali. Bali has long been a mecca for the healing arts and a top retreat location offering beautiful spaces and energy for healing.We will guide you in art making, movement, sharing, ritual, healing and some incredible tools to change your thoughts and perceptions, your feelings and emotions so you feel liberated, at peace and gain an understanding and insight that will effect your life for the better.Healing Suicide opens in Bali, Indonesia on the 7th of September 2018 with a meet and greet banquet dinner and closes on the 16th September. During the course of the retreat we will explore all our ideas and notions on suicide and death, explore feelings like greif, that may be blocking us from living into our potential and use a myriad of tools and techniques to guide you into well being. Suicide is an event that affects not only the person who passes but also the people who know and love them - their families, their friends, their colleagues.These people, often many of them, are left asking the questions of "Why"? - "Could I have done something to make a difference"? - "What didn't i do"? - "What did I do"? and many more.... These are the questions to which there are no real answers as the person they are asking them of is no longer here. But they still need to be spoken - an acceptance needs to be reached for the ones left behind to move on.To add to this, we have to deal with our feelings of grief, anger, guilt, bewilderment and helplessness, to name a few. Then there is still an element of shame in our society... suicide seems to be one of the last 'forbidden' subjects. The people who are grieving often have to be very careful who they speak to in their time of sorrow, they are very vulnerable to judgments, often harsh ones, from other people. they are subject to other peoples fear - almost like they might be carrying a contagious disease... There are very few places that one can go to, to speak openly, honestly in a non-judgmental place with others who have been in similar circumstances.Donna and Scarlett are offering just such a place for profound healing to happen. In a place of beauty, magic, gentleness and deep understanding, we offer you a space to process your feelings and be heard through sharing, listening, art therapy, writing, ritual, bodywork, dance and immeasurable love. Scarlett’s experience with suicide started when she was 11 years old with the death of her sister and then again 30 years later with the death of her young nephew. It had a profound & life changing affect on her life that she has only gained awareness of through deep personal work and her profession. Scarlett is trained counselor, wholistic therapist, midwife, doula and group facilitator with a special interest in the power of ritual work and creativity as a healing modality.Donna is a visual artist and has been studying various energy healing modalities for many years. She currently lives in Bali. Through her own experience with suicide firstly, the father of her child, followed by a number of close friends, Donna transformed feelings of devastation, grief, insomnia and agoraphobia through the powerful process of making art, music, journaling, eft and shamanic knowledge as a way to express that which could not be spoken, a way to process and come to a place of peace after an abundance of complex emotion." Through my most darkest moments, through my deepest grief and sadness, art making in its varied content was thread of golden light that led to an acceptance, profound healing and inner transformation "Join us for a 10 day retreat in the beautiful Bali.
